Let's fetz - Das geilste Fanzine der Welt
2011, Fanzine Workshop, University of Applied Sciences Mainz
With: Sebastian Haslauer, Manuel Bürger (Shake Your Tree Publishing), Dirk Mönkemöller (The Weekender), hosted by Atelier Zukunft
A lecture about the spirit of real fanzine culture and a workshop on how to make the greatest fanzine within 72 hours. ""Without coming up with a story you can't speak about a fanzine - true love must be manifested in text articles not only pictures."", Mönkemöller claims after an introduction of our work. True. The tricky part of our story was, that it should be made for the sake of it: pushing your intention of a dialogue in the catchiest form posible. The ultimate was the story.
Timetable of the weekend:
FRIDAY: Lecture about fanzine cultue. Conception of the fanzine and first articles.
SATURDAY: Finishing the concept-phase till noon. Start working and estimating the article length till 4pm. Making a structure, compiling articles. Working late to finish the distribution.
SUNDAY: Putting the distributions together till 1pm. Students start to print parall on the RISO. First magazines were finished monday mornings...
We were quite surprised by the imagination of the contributions - behind the form you find real entertainment. Mission completed.
